Mornin’, love. Grab your cuppa. We’re about to anoint another Brit as the winner of the Sally Award for best party look of the week. And what a red carpet week it was. While there were so many fabulously frocked gals at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball who were Sally Award contenders, we had to give this week’s Award to British actress Tilda Swinton for her chic look at last weekend’s Gotham Independent Film Awards. Dressed in a blush-hued crepe and silk gown by Colombian designer, Haider Ackermann, Tilda looked effortlessly elegant as she walked the red carpet, continuing her reign as one of the great style icons of our time.
Certainly, this dress is gorgeous, but it’s Tilda in the dress that makes it fashion perfection. Let’s face it: this gown suits Tilda to a T. The color, the cut and the artful mix of masculine and feminine details celebrate perfectly our gal’s trademark style and androgynous look. And, of course, Tilda’s finger-combed pompadour and signature natural makeup were fresh, flawless and très français. No wonder she has been named the new face of NARS Cosmetics for the makeup brand’s Spring 2015 campaign. Here’s to you, Tilda, for reminding us this week about the number one rule of successful party dressing: know who you are.
